    It is certainly true in the humans species!

    You beat me to it! Next will be a study confirming males enjoy sex—whether it be moose or man

  3. Well I am glad to see that natural selection is working for at least one species. . if only humans would be more selective in producing offspring!

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
